Chelsea has stated that they are willing to meet Inter’s expectations. Romelu Lukaku has made a big transfer breakthrough.
Chelsea are attempting to sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan this summer.
According to rumors, Chelsea are willing to pay £93.25 million to bring Inter Milan star Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge this summer. The 28-year-old is thought to be high on Thomas Tuchel’s shopping list as the German manager looks to recruit a top-flight striker ahead of the new season.
Since joining Inter from Manchester United in 2019, Lukaku has established himself as one of the top marksmen in the world.
Last season, he helped the San Siro giants win their first Serie A title in over a decade by scoring 30 goals in all competitions.
The Belgian has been heavily linked with a return to Chelsea this summer, following Chelsea’s rejection of two player-plus-cash proposals from Inter last month.
However, a move to west London appears to be on the cards, with Chelsea willing to pay a one-off fee of £93.25 million, according to Sky Sports.
Inter prefers a cash-only trade, according to the source, hence no Blues players will be included in the deal.
The framework of the prospective transfer is also being discussed between the two parties, with Chelsea reportedly prioritizing Lukaku over Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as their priority goal.
Their most recent offer was supposed to involve a sum of £85 million plus Marcos Alonso’s services, but Inter remained steadfast in their refusal to sell their prized asset.
In the following days, an enhanced Chelsea bid might put the Italian champions’ commitment to the test as the Premier League heavyweights ratchet up their efforts to get Lukaku.
If the Blues make a £102 million offer before the end of the summer transfer season, Inter are said to be willing to sell.
It’s unclear if they’ll accept a £93.25 million offer or send Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia back to the drawing board in quest of a higher sum.
According to other sources, Lukaku has begged Inter to accept a realistic Chelsea offer as he seeks a return to the Premier League.
Federico Pastorello, the player’s agent, recently hinted at his client’s wish to depart with a cryptic Instagram comment that implied all is not well in Milan.
“You.” According to the Brinkwire Summary News.
